STRICTLY Come Dancing stars Ola and James Jordan have postponed their UK tour.

They were due to perform at York Barbican on March 4, but James is still recovering from an injury incurred during rehearsals.

In a statement they said they were "hugely saddened" to have to announce the postponement of their UK tour this March which was "due to an unforeseen required extension to the recovery of an injury incurred by James during rehearsals".

The couple said: “We are devastated that James’ operation has caused us to postpone our tour as we were both so excited to dance together again for you all.

"We are so sorry to be letting so many people down, not only those who purchased tickets but all the cast and people that have helped work on the show to create something special.

"We hope you understand that health always comes first and hope for your continuous support in any of our future endeavours.”

James is expected to make a full recovery but to ensure there is no reoccurrence, his medical team have strongly recommended a longer rest period.
